If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Can Time Be Saved From Physics?
Philosophers, physicists and neuroscientists discuss how our sense of time’s flow might arise through our interactions with external stimuli—despite suggestions from Einstein's relativity that our perception of the passage of time is an illusion.

A devilish new framework of thermodynamics that focuses on how we observe information could help illuminate our understanding of probability and rewrite quantum theory.

An unusual approach to unifying the laws of physics could solve Hawking's black-hole information paradox—and its predicted gravitational "memory effect" could be picked up by LIGO.

Could Mind Forge the Universe?
Objective reality, and the laws of physics themselves, emerge from our observations, according to a new framework that turns what we think of as fundamental on its head.

Hi Jonathan and Jorge,

coincidentally I just watched another video that is talking about cosmic inflation (did you see that one too?) and found it great to have additional background information on the cosmic inflation theory. Jorge, I liked how you visualized the narration and it really helped me understanding the phenomenon (I like to learn with visual cues). I also found the article talking about the discovery and I'm excited to see what the October 2014 result will look like. What are your guesses? It is quite exciting to imagine that we will be able to look at the young universe (well younger than 380.000 years) and (as far as I understood) mostly by quantum physics shaped time.

I hope you are doing well in the competition and wish you luck!

Madeleine

I love how you intentionally used cartoonish visuals to make something complex appear more friendly and easy to understand. May I ask what software you used? I'm in to animation too, and I primarily rely on After Effects and Photoshop.

Would you mind checking out my video as well? It also uses lots of animations to make physics concepts seem easy to understand and fun. http://fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2148

Thanks!

I appreciate the lucid explanation of the BICEP2 results! Another excellent video. I just rated it and would be really appreciative if you could take a look at our video "What is Supersymmetry?" and rate it as well. Thank you so much.

Very nice video about BICEP2 and inflation! I am glad to be the one to give the 10th rating to this video, and I wish you good luck in the contest. If you have time, I would appreciate if you will watch and rate my videos The puzzle of quantum reality and Can a black hole keep a secret?.

Best regards,

Cristi

Jorge,

Having worked in cosmology and met Alan Guth many times when I was in graduate school, I am happy to see that your video about cosmic inflation has reached the 10 community votes threshold (I gave you my vote many days ago).

Did you have the chance to take a look at my series of animated videos entitled "This Is Physics"? One of my videos, "Physics Into Darkness", is still in need of community votes, and if you have the time to take a look at it, it would be quite appreciated. My video features Einstein riding on a meter stick, an "iceberg of mystery" and a slot machine that creates universes!!! Here's the direct link:

Physics Into Darkness

Thank you, and good luck in the contest!
